Kevin Czuczman Headshot

Czuczman was placed on waivers Tuesday in order to reassign him to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton , James Mirtle of The Athletic Torontoreports.

Czuczman would have needed a phenomenal camp in order to win a spot on the 23-man roster, so it should come as no surprise the organization decided to move him down to the minors. The 26-year-old last appeared in an NHL contest during the 2013-14 season when he was with the Islanders in which he notched a pair of helpers. While he does have offensive upside, the Pens depth on the blue line all but guarantees the London, Ontario native will spend the entire year with the Baby Pens.

Jose Martinez (R) Headshot

Martinez (thumb) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs.

Martinez received a cortisone shot Sunday in hopes of reducing the swelling in his thumb, but it has apparently not done the trick just yet, as he is not ready to start two days later. Matt Carpenter will continue manning first base while Martinez remains sidelined.
3:51 pm (EST)
Yan Gomes (R) Headshot

Gomes is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

Gomes will take a seat for the second straight contest as him and Roberto Perez continue to split time behind the dish. He's started 11 of the Indians' 22 games this month, and should continue to share duties with Perez in the final week.
3:49 pm (EST)
Frank Corrado Headshot

Corrado was placed on waivers by the Penguins on Tuesday, James Mirtle of The Athleticreports.

Considering what the Pens gave up to bring in Corrado -- Eric Fehr, Steve Oleksy and a fourth-round pick -- fans will no doubt be disappointed to see he was unable to earn a spot on the 23-man roster. The 24-year-old heads back to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, where he registered one goal and three helpers last season.
3:48 pm (EST)
Anthony Rendón (R) Headshot

Rendon (foot) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Rendon got a day off Monday in order to give his sore foot a rest, but he is ready to get back in the lineup just one day later. He will man the hot corner like he regularly does and hit third in the Nationals' batting order.
3:47 pm (EST)
D.J. Humphries Headshot

Humphries (knee) is expected to play in Week 4's game against the 49ers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

As expected, Humphries should be back on the field Sunday after missing the last two weeks. Following a rough outing from the offensive line Monday night, Humphries' return will be a key one for Arizona.
3:45 pm (EST)
Carlos Santana (B) Headshot

Santana (shoulder) is starting at first base and batting sixth Tuesday against the Twins.

Santana sat out Sunday with a shoulder injury, but the Indians never thought the issue was anything overly serious, and he's back in the lineup after the team's off day Monday. He'll face Bartolo Colon in his return to action.
3:43 pm (EST)
Daniel Murphy (L) Headshot

Murphy is not in the lineup Tuesday for the second straight day, according to Jamal Collier of MLB.com.

Murphy began experiencing hamstring soreness last week just like he did late last year, so manager Dusty Baker has been cautious with his usage since in an effort to prevent the setback from getting any worse. Howie Kendrick will man the keystone for the Nationals on Tuesday night.
3:43 pm (EST)
Alex Boone Headshot

Boone suffered a pec strain in Monday's loss to the Cowboys and will have an MRI on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Boone suffered the injury on the final Arizona possession, but there likely won't be an update on his timetable until after he has his MRI. Expect an update by Wednesday on Boone's status heading into Week 4.
3:39 pm (EST)
Chris Johnson Headshot

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday that Johnson would retain the starting role at running back heading into the Week 4 matchup with the 49ers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

After turning to Kerwynn Williams as the starter in Week 2 in place of the injured David Johnson (wrist), Arians called upon the newly re-signed Chris Johnson to lead the team's backfield in Monday's loss to the Cowboys. Johnson was unable to provide much of a spark on the ground, gaining only 17 yards on 12 carries. In spite of Johnson's lack of production, Williams logged just one offensive snap, signaling that Arians wasn't preparing for another changing of the guard in the backfield. While Johnson will receive another shot at redemption Sunday against a San Francisco defense that struggled to slow down Rams running back Todd Gurley a week earlier, the 32-year-old nonetheless projects as a low-end starting option at the position in most formats. To compensate for the weak running game, the Cardinals will likely utilize another pass-heavy attack in Week 4, as quarterback Carson Palmer has attempted no fewer than 36 passes in any of the team's first three contests.
